v/a- CEASE & DESIST - DIY!: CULT CLASSICS FROM THE POST-PUNK ERA 1978-82 2LP
Collects 15 UK 7" singles recorded between 1978 and 1982, compiled by JD TWITCH to showcase the DIY spirit of those times. This release has been a real labor of love, involving tracing long-lost artists to far-flung corners of the globe, persuading them that the modern world needs to hear the music they made several decades ago, tracking down masters—lovingly restoring 7"s in place of lost masters in some cases—and conceiving an elaborate package with detailed sleeve notes to house the double album. Includes tracks by TESCO BOMBERS, SARA GOES POP, PEOPLE IN MOTION, NANCY SESAY & THE MELODAIRES, THE DISTRIBUTORS, DOROTHY, THOMAS LEER, VISITORS, THE MURPHY FEDERATION, THE CRO-TONES, FATAL MICROBES, SPUNKY ONIONS, THE FAKES and THE PRATS.
Super-deluxe package combines a double-sided black-and-white four-panel sleeve, hand-folded into an LP sleeve with a color insert containing color photos of all the sleeves, all inserted in a bespoke PVC wallet.
